This is a dramatisation by Simon Brett of his Charles Paris novel of the same name.

The ever louche, womanising drinker - and occasional actor -  has cracked it, a part in a West End play. The bodies inevitably start to appear as Charles finds himself in a race -  which will come first a) to be murdered himself, or b) to be thrown out of his lodgings by his long suffering, estranged wife Frances.

Charles Paris, but not Jeremy Front style, rather a "straight" dramatisation, with Francis Matthews as Charles. Charles Paris returns again, in a fringe show at the Edinburgh Festival, with another nubile girl to provoke him, and his accommodating wife to console him, and a gory murder to challenge him in So Much Blood.
